BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:55 A.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces took full control of the Sinjar region of the Nineveh Governorate following the withdrawal of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

According to local activists in Sinjar, the PKK forces completely withdrew from the western part of this region after Turkey announced that they were planning a military operation there.

The activists added that the Yezidi-led Hashd Al-Sha’abi forces took control of the area.

Since the withdrawal of the PKK forces from Sinjar, Turkey called off their operations in this region in Iraq’s northwestern countryside.

The Russians saw this VERY well. And Damascus too, as they sent-in NDF to take over most of Afrin. Turkey had agreed to halt Olive Branch. YPG had agreed too. It all brokered by the Russians. And, as we can witness in Sinjar, Turkey is a rational player.
Instead, YPG made a last-minute afterthought and 40+ brave men of the NDF payed the ultimate price.
It’s not about silliness, it’s about being US shills.
